MLS® #: DCDC475704
Active, 155 Days on Market

Special, SURPRISE! This home is MUCH bigger than it appears.  What appears to be a modest 2-story porchfront facade conceals a 2600+ sf Home, w/ quality modern finishes, a bright, inviting interior layout, and extras such as a loft penthouse bedroom/guest room w/ E/W roof decks & flagstone patio for multiple uses! Location is near perfect, walking distance to all that is great about Capitol Hill. One of a kind Home, with Original (but restored to an historic esthetic) Front Facade w/ porch, and Updated Inside plus extensive new addition! This home is a sleek modern 4 bedroom townhouse incorporating many unique luxury touches. The welcoming Front room features cove lights and a 70' wall of exposed brick! A short hall conceals the marble powder room, and leads to  the upscale designer kitchen! The kitchen features high quality stainless appliances, stone countertops and  European styled cabinetry.  Warmed by a gas fireplace, and lit by more cove lighting, multiple glass brick accent windows and a wall of french doors, the large Living Room provides much space for entertaining, as it flows naturally and gracefully to the deep flagstone patio. The patio features a pergola 'dividing' it from the parking space, accessible via an automatic rolltop door. Up the wide stairs, the second floor, offers an arrangement of cove lights and spot lights, three large dual paned windows and a custom built Walk-in Closet & Dressing Room. An opulent Master Bath has marble dual basin sink,  a spacious shower stall with multiple body sprays, a separate water closet and features a luxurious corner whirlpool bath!  This floor has two more large bedrooms that share an equally plush 2nd bath! This home also boasts a topfloor Penthouse Loft bedroom/guest room/party room, accessible via a sleek stainless steel spiral staircase. This "skybox" room sports multiple skylights + a wet bar (complete with wine refrigerator), with access to TWO roof decks: one facing East & one West. It can be used as a place for quiet contemplation or joyous celebration. The soft modern style comes from the choice of distinctive QUALITY choices, and can be seen in the unique ceramic tiles, decorative stone, hardwood floors, cove lighting, and dual paned windows that grace each room, while remote ceiling fans, recessed lighting and closets with adaptable multiple shelving enhance each bedroom. Even more attention has been given to the areas you can't see! The many refinements include a new two- zone central gas heat and electric air conditioning system; a model of efficiency & economy. This is a custom design home, never occupied which the builder states is virtually "MAINTENANCE FREE", and, with so many design features, a smart alternative to the luxury condo, such as those across the street. This home is within the historic District of Capitol Hill, very well located offering the coveted Zone 6 parking permit. Capitol Hill is well located, surrounded by several metro stations, the blue-orange line is 4 blocks away equidistant from the Potomac & Eastern Market metro stations.  495/395/295/ 50/ 66/ 95/ 1/ 210 are highway numbers which will take a car in any direction.  National airport is about 5 miles away, BWI is less than 20 and Dulles a tad further. Parks dot our Capitol Hill hood. Restaurants as thy recover are ethnic and diverse. The Capitol buildings, the mall, museums, monuments, original cemeteries, the centers of world power are mostly in walking distance.   Less traffic than NW, and (possibly) better neighbors!
